    I can't find anyone who will do power raking in my area of Michigan. The companies I call say aeration is better but we NEED to have our lawn power raked because we've mulched for so many years the dead grass won't budge and the fertilizer won't work properly therefore we have too many weeds now!!!

    Great vid!  I need to aerate, dethatch and overseed. What is the proper order? I assume, dethatch, core plug then overseed…then fert, yes?  thanks!!

    Hey Stanley! Thank You for taking time out of your busy day to make this video! I'm your 3,220 th. like. I have a question for you. Do you recommend plug aeration prior to detaching or visa versa? I was thinking about detaching prior to core aeration so I don't end up pulling all of the plugs through the lawn until I saw your video. I like the idea of the plugs breaking down and settling back into the ground.
    However it may drive me crazy seeing all of the plugs laying around. So maybe I should do the core aeration first and detaching 2nd so it breaks up the plugs easier?
    Whats your take on this? I appreciate your recommendation for my question.

    If i plan on overseeding with a power overseeder, will that also dethatch the lawn?

    I've found that removing weed's in your lawn with a about six inch lockblade knife is a good way to get your grass to dominate it's growing bed & if the weed's are'nt removed that some weed's will try to take over the lawn. I found that once a weed begins to grow that it leaves small bare spot's in your lawn after it is removed. If you remove weed's about every week before you mow it can successfully help your lawn & kill enough of the weed's to gain control of the problem. Using a regular rutine of removing Weed's is good for your lawn. My warning about removing weed's this way is that it's physically tough. Removing weed's seem's to work well if you take out a percent of them at a time in a random pattern from the entire lawn each time you mow.

    how often should i aerate? i just dethatched, aerated, and seeded in the fall. and i want to seed again early spring

  • Tom's YardCare 9 months ago

    I currently do a combination service that is usually requested in the spring and occasionally in the fall. I dethatch, go over it with my bag mower at a lower setting making sure to pick up all the thatch, and then go over it with a spike style aerator. What are your thoughts on this approach?
